Intake and Throttle Linkage
Hi, my name is Luke and this is my second year working with Mobil 1 Sussex Racing. My project within the team this year, is to design and optimise the intake system for the car. This involves the use of 1D engine modelling software, CAD and CFD programs, in an attempt to reduce the impact on performance the restrictor imposes on the engine. This is the first year where a significant amount of time and funding is being spent on the intake system as research has shown that an increase of performance is evident when teams have used a tuned intake system. I will also be working closely with the electronic sub team to produce the first Sussex Racing car to use a fly by wire throttle assembly.
